Yunnan Kitchen is unlike any Chinese restaurant in the area. One look at the sleek two-year old spot on Clinton Street is all that’s required to know that. It’s not just the ambiance that sets this place apart; it’s also one of the only restaurants in New York showcasing the cuisine of the Yunnan Province in Southwest China. Chef Kevin Chun makes uses of rarely seen ingredients such as chrysanthemum leaves, paired with locally sourced components to create a selection of small plates offering subtle and unusual flavors.
